About the property

Spacious two bed, two bath upscale apartment in the sizzling Gaslamp Quarter

Within the Victorian-era buildings and modern skyscrapers of the Gaslamp Quarter, you'll find one of the coolest neighborhoods in San Diego. This ultra-hip spot is packed with offices, pubs, nightclubs and funky little shops with one of a kind stuff you won't find anywhere else.

Culture vultures will be right at home here, as the area is packed with art galleries, theatres, concert venues, museums and symphony halls. If all of that awesome culture has made you work up an appetite, head to one of the diverse and delicious restaurants, serving up everything from modern Italian cuisine to fresh sushi and much more.

When evening falls, this neighborhood turns into one of the hottest nightlife spots in the city, with superb rooftop chillout spaces, swanky cocktail bars and excellent live music pubs.

There's no doubt that you will fall in love with the awesome Gaslamp Quarter and never want to leave. The experience is made even more awesome by the fact that you have a sweet apartment to come back to, with an ultra-comfy bed to fall asleep in at the end of your action-packed day.

We believe that when you stay in one of our sweet apartments, you should be spoiled for choice with awesome things to see and do whenever you step out your front door. That's why this chilled out space is located right in the heart of the ultra-hip Gaslamp Quarter.

You'll be surrounded by one of the hippest neighborhoods in the city, with countless awesome bars, restaurants and shops to check out. I know it's exciting, but calm down and don't become so obsessed with seeing everything that you forget to rest and hydrate. You've gotta pace yourself! Fortunately, you have your super-swanky apartment right there for whenever you need a break.

About Stay Alfred

Hi, friend. Traveling can be such a grind, can't it? Plane rides wrinkle your limited supply of clean clothes. Hotel beds double as chairs for a cramped business meeting or family gathering. And the normal vacation rental closets bulge with other people's ... who knows what. Or worse yet, who knows who. There's a better way to stay.

Located in our city's' most vibrant neighborhoods and desirable buildings, your Stay Alfred is your home away from home, where you can relax and recharge your batteries (figuratively, of course, but literally, too), invite family or colleagues to gather, cook a meal in your fully equipped kitchen and even replenish your precious supply of clean socks in your in-unit washer and dryer. And, the only thing you'll find in our closets are fresh linens and all of the kitchen conveniences you'd ever need.

It's our mission to help you feel at home while you travel. Stay Alfred is… Your place in the city.

Why Stay Alfred chose Downtown

By booking with Stay Alfred, you are choosing premier travel accommodations. We never compromise on quality, comfort, or convenience because we understand that our guests expect, and deserve, the best. Each Stay Alfred property offers first-class modern amenities, attractive decor, 4-star housekeeping, unsurpassed location, and is equipped with all the comforts of home. In the heart of downtown Bellevue, you will be within easy walking distance of upscale dining and shopping, as well as nature trails, parks, and swim beaches. Many of our guests decide not to rent a car!

What makes this apartment unique

Stay Alfred’s offerings are ideal for families and corporate travelers alike. No more staying on separate floors and no more sets of side-by-side beds. Our guests enjoy three times the square footage of an average hotel room. They enjoy having separate bedrooms and a real living room. They save money by cooking some of their meals in their complete kitchen. They have a washer/dryer, in case they need it. They get 5-star customer service from our team of dedicated hospitality experts.

And the best part is, our guests know they��re getting all of those things every time, no matter where they stay with us. Your stay with us in Portland will look the same as your next stay in Seattle. Your booking, check-in, check-out will be the same in Denver as it was in Nashville, so you don��t have to wonder. Consistency is our key ingredient.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures were an accurate representation of the property. It was a great neighbor hood just two blocks over from the busy night-club filled streets of the Gaslamp district. The court yard was a great place to wind down after a long day of exploring the city. The building's residents were charming and fun to hang out with. I travel a lot for business and this was a great change from the boring old hotels.

Roaches everywhere.

  • 2 of 5

There were cockroaches everywhere. On day 1 we killed at least 10. Then 1-2 daily for several days until the last day when I killed about 5, and 3 on the morning I left before 6 AM. Despite being very observant, I killed one more stow away when I got home. If not for the roaches, the location and apartment were wonderful.

Awful

  • 1 of 5

The pluming was barely functional. The sinks were all backed up and stunk. The stay Alfred people basically did nothing just provided lip service. This issue was never resolved I have tons of pictures and the responses from the host company that I would love to submit.

Nice Place for Our Group

  • 4 of 5

Over all the apartment was pretty good; nice, central location, comfortable beds, plenty of space. None of us felt comfortable sitting on the chairs at the table as they are all super wobbly- screws loose to the point of falling out, but as we weren't eating any meals in that wasn't a problem for us.

Lovely floor to ceiling windows, we never ran out of hot water (there were 5 of us), balcony with a table and two chairs that was nice in the evening once the sun set and the humidity lowered a bit.

Great place.

  • 5 of 5

Good location and very clean place. Good access to Gaslamp!

Could use more kitchen towels and a cutting board. Other than that, perfect place .

Great location. Super clean unit. In the heart of Gaslamp

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The unit is much more spacious than we anticipated. The location was perfect for walking to all of Downtown. Only drawbacks would be parking and the blinds in the bedrooms. Some blackout curtains would help with light and noise. :) But still giving 5 stars for price and experience.
